Github Actions Hackathon

Use GitHub Actions from our Hackathons


Two of our latest GitHub Hackathons have been around GitHub Actions. We encourage you to try out GitHub Actions. Actions connect all of the tools in your workflow: You can solve problems, build containers, deploy to any cloud, and more. Below you'll see some of these Actions built during the hackathon. Feel free to use them and be inspired by them.
